This delightful and serene 119-acre (48.15-hectare) nature preserve is located south of Bath off ME 127. Limited parking is in a dirt lot. A trail map and an info kiosk are onsite. It's carry-in carry-out here. The preserve’s network of 2.6 miles (4.2 km) is well marked and color-coded. Their surfaces are mostly compact dirt and ledge outcrops. The generally easy trails wind along the rocky shorelines and tidal mudflats of Robinhood Cove. Salt marsh borders the preserve on two sides. Trails traverse meadows, coastal margins, woods, and ridgelines. The easternmost trail has six or so vista points above the shoreline. Shorebirds are often visible feeding at the water’s edge. Birdsong is everywhere! The mixed-wood coastal forest has oak, pine, spruce, hemlock, and various flowering trees. Among the preserve’s highlights on my late afternoon photo walk were the still-brown salt marshes and the just-emerging flowers and plants near an old beaver pond and a brook. Be sure to bring a camera and you’ll enjoy this place as much as I did!
